Spalding House Family Day

In conjunction with Bank of Hawaii Family Sunday, the museum also holds a free Family Day at its location in Makiki Heights, with entertainment and an art activity. A free shuttle bus will run between the Honolulu Museum of Art and Spalding House, so you can enjoy two different events in one day.

Dec 21: Pasko!

Continue the Pasko celebration at Spalding House. Artists Nicole and Ryan Higa help children create jeepney ornaments using things like recycled milk cartons, yarn, and colored paper. It’ll be ready to hang on the tree!
